Beautiful flowers ...

Over at Polka Doodles Challenges the theme is "Anything Goes" but the DT have been asked to add some texture to their projects.

For my project, I have used the wonderful Lemonade Fizz stamp soup set with papers from the co-ordinating CD. I stamped out the flowers and then re-stamped them in order that I had a further layer. Before assembling the flowers, I placed them in a dotty embossing folder ... which does not show in the photos as sillily I chose to use dotty paper .... head in hands moment!

The flowers have been mounted on to colour co-ordinating mats and then added to a strip of printed card with twine added.

Little stamped hearts were added to the end of each strip and they too were embossed in the same folder. Beside each heart, is the stamped sentiment "beautiful".

A quick card which I think needs to re-created in different colour ways ... I wonder if I still have any ink left in my printer ... ?!?!?!

Underwater Artist Art Journal Page using Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light

I treated myself a long while ago to the fabulous Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light and sadly have to report that it has stayed hidden in a folder since then. Finally, I had some precious "me time" and decided to get the collection and have a play around with a few of the stamps plus collage/paper piece s. It was the sentiment that really "sang to me" 😍 but not like a Sea Siren does ...! A full "how I did it" is below & also a full list of supplies at the bottom of the post.

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me 😏😍😉 This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.

Learning to photograph my craft projects featuring Text(ures) stamps by Lou Collins

Do you know what I find the hardest about blogging and sharing on social media? Taking clear, good photographs. It really is a daily struggle & some days, the struggle can be monumental when doing photography editing.   Recently I’ve been following a few wonderful artists & a few companies, who above being creative, also share their hints and tips about how to get the best shots to show case the project you may have spent hours making.   My subject for this post is the card below …
